It turns out that US President Donald Trump has actually accepted that Russia may have interfered in the 2016 election that saw him defeat Democrat Hillay Clinton to reach the White House.
Fielding questions from the media, Trump, who is Poland, said: “Well I think it could very well have been Russia, could have been other countries, I won’t be specific. I think a lot of people interfere. It has been happening for a long time, it has been happening for many many years.”
US intelligence agencies strongly believe that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 Presidential elections and are investigating links between Trump’s campaign and Moscow. With no evidence of collusion emerging so far, Trump dismissed the story as “fake news”.
Trump came under strong criticism from all quarters for firing FBI director James Comey who was probing fired national security adviser Michael Flynn’s links with Russia.
